Hmmmmm, I had a fantastic night on Friday. A cracking view from the upstairs bar. The bar staff were all right, could have been a bit more quicker. Then My friends and I went downstairs where the DJ played the best choice in music I've heard in a long time. Having made a request of Public Enemy He played it almost straight away.
This place will be buzzing in the summer and I for one will be there to soak up the atmosphere and the tunes!

Popped in for a festive tipple after work with a few mates, enroute to town. Ignored by staff despite waving the contents of my purse at the bar (despite the fact there we all of 15 people in the premesis at the time). This place is really the pits, a friend warned me about the lack of hospitality at this place a long time ago. I should have heeded his warning. I'm frankly flabberghasted by the lack of professionalism at this dive. A prime example of what a bar should'nt be! Steer well clear of this pit.

What can I say about this place? Well for starters we hired out the upstairs room so can't comment too much about down stairs. Staff were really friendly, the hot food (lots of different nibble plates) was spot on. Chefs came out to check on everything which for a nice touch.

The staff and manager went out of their way to accommodate us. Loos were clean (which is often an added bonus in some bars).

Just a shame that it was winter as the outside deck was closed off. Although I must add that a couple of us blatantly ignored that and went up anyway. The view is quality. Definitely a must for summer drinking.

All in all a good time was had by everyone present.

Avoid this place at all costs. The staff are thoroughly miserable, the toilets are a disgrace and the beer is warm and watered down. You have been warned - what a dump!

Had to wait 10 minutes to be acknowledged by one of the disinterested staff before paying over the odds for a warm pint and red wine served in an ice bucket, left immediately. Awful excuse for a "pub".
